Caring for your teeth continues to be very important. Unfortunately, even those that brush and floss daily and go to a dentist on a regular basis could see staining on their teeth and experience slight chips and cracks. If this is the case for you, coming to see Dr. Michael Morris serving Louetta, TX, and Spring, TX can be a great option. This dentist and the entire team can offer a variety of solutions. One great option to consider is to have veneers placed on your teeth.

What are Veneers?

Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain material that is placed on top of your existing tooth. They are typically bonded on and can be a permanent solution to a variety of cosmetic dental challenges. They are a permanent solution and typically will take a few visits to your dentist to complete the process. This will include a session for consultation, tooth preparation, and eventually having them placed. Once they are on, the veneers are easy to maintain and can help with different cosmetic dental challenges.

Veneers for Stained Teeth

One of the benefits of veneers is that they can help with stained teeth. It is increasingly common for someone to have stains on their teeth due to the regular consumption of coffee, tea, and soda. While you can brush regularly, preventing and completely cleaning the stains is hard. With veneers, you can completely cover up the stains and have a natural white set of teeth. Another advantage is that veneers do not stain nearly as easily.

Veneers for Chipped Teeth

When meeting with Dr. Michael Morris serving Louetta, TX and Spring, TX, you will also find that veneers are a good solution for chipped teeth. If you have had some minor level of trauma that has led to a chip in your teeth, you could use veneers to cover it up. The veneers are able to provide a smooth layer on top of your existing teeth. This can help to cover up the chips and help your teeth look great and blend in with the rest of them. The veneers can also be a good solution if you would like to fill in small gaps.

If you are interested in learning more about veneers, you should come to see Dr. Michael Morris who serves Louetta, TX, and Spring, TX. When you come here, you can receive a full consultation to learn more about if veneers are right for you and your situation. You can then have your teeth prepared and have the veneers installed to ensure your teeth look and feel their best.

Looking for more information regarding crowns and bridges? You’ve come to the right place.

Whether you’re dealing with severe tooth decay, a cracked tooth, or even a missing tooth, your Spring, TX, family dentist Dr. Michael Morris crafts custom, high-quality crowns and bridges for patients dealing with damaged or missing teeth. Here’s what you should know about getting custom dental crowns and bridges from our team.

Restore Damaged and Imperfect Teeth with Crowns

A crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that covers a tooth all the way to the gums. It is often used to strengthen and rebuild a tooth after an infection, decay, or injury. Cracked, chipped, severely decayed, and infected teeth will often benefit from getting a custom dental crown from our dental team. Crowns can also be used to hide severe internal stains and to improve the overall shape and appearance of oddly shaped or malformed teeth.

Replace Missing Teeth with Bridges

If you are missing one or two teeth in a row, then your Spring, TX, dentist may recommend a dental bridge to fill these gaps with tooth-colored false teeth. If your natural teeth are healthy enough to support this restoration, then we will most likely recommend a fixed dental bridge.

A fixed dental bridge is made up of crowns placed over the teeth that surround the gap in your smile. Cemented into place between the two crowns is the pontic, or false tooth. Once the crowns are cemented into place the false teeth will naturally rest in the gap, giving you a full smile again.

Whether you are looking for crowns and bridges or professional teeth whitening, our dental team offers the cosmetic and restorative dentistry you need to get your smile back on track. All of the restorations we offer are crafted to meet your needs so they give you a beautiful, natural-looking smile.

When dental injuries or issues happen to you, it’s important to act fast. Our dental team is here to treat the problem right away and fit you with beautiful, natural-looking crowns and bridges. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Morris in Spring, TX, call us at (281) 379-6939.

Even tiny flaws in your teeth can make you want to stop smiling. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry services offered by your Spring, TX, dentist, Dr. Michael Morris, can correct imperfections and revitalize your smile. Dr. Morris helps residents of the entire Spring and Louetta, TX, area care for their smiles.

Smile-enhancing cosmetic services

Checkups and fillings aren't the only services your Louetta and Spring dentist provides. He also offers treatments and restorations that improve the appearance or function of your teeth, including:

  • Teeth Whitening: If you're looking for a quick, relatively inexpensive way to boost your smile, you'll want to consider teeth whitening. In-office whitening only takes about an hour, or you can opt for take-home trays and whiten at home. Whitening removes stains that make teeth look dull and can brighten your smile by up to eight shades.
  • Tooth Restoration: Gaps don't have to become permanent features of your smile. Your dentist can restore missing teeth with bridges, dentures or implant-supported dentures. Replacing lost teeth not only improves your appearance but also enhances your ability to chew and even speak clearly.
  • Dental Veneers: There's no such thing as a minor tooth imperfection. Even a tiny chip or crack can make you feel more than a little self-conscious. Veneers cover the fronts of teeth with tooth-shaped plastic or porcelain shells that conceal damage and flaws. In addition to hiding imperfections, veneers can also change the shape or length of teeth, close slight gaps between teeth, improve the appearance of discolored teeth, or whiten your smile.
  • Invisalign: Have you always wished your teeth were straighter? It's never too late to straighten crooked teeth or correct overbites, underbites, or other bite problems. The Invisalign system improves the alignment of your teeth discreetly. During your treatment, you'll wear a series of removable aligner trays that gradually reposition your teeth. Best of all, most people won't even realize that you're improving your smile. Invisalign aligner trays are made of clear plastic and are virtually invisible.

Get the smile you want and know you deserve with cosmetic dentistry

You have decided it’s time to improve and enhance your smile and you are ready to turn to our Spring and Louetta, cosmetic dentist Dr. Michael Morris to get beautiful results. If you are looking for a dental treatment that can give you a straighter, whiter and more even smile then you may want to consider getting dental veneers.

Here are just some of the ways veneers can improve your smile,

Cover Stains and Discolorations

While external stains (which are usually yellow in appearance) can often be treated with teeth whitening, internal stains are usually not as responsive to whitening treatment. Of course, you still want to be able to get a whiter smile. Even though your smile may not be an ideal candidate for teeth whitening you can still get a brighter smile with the help of dental veneers.

Close Gaps and Get a Straighter Smile

If you have teeth that are slightly crooked, or if you are dealing with minor crowding or gaps between teeth you may be able to turn to dental veneers to achieve a straighter smile. By bonding veneers to the front of your teeth, veneers can easily fill gaps and make teeth appear better aligned. While veneers won’t be able to fix more serious misalignment issues, our Louetta, TX area dentist will be able to examine your smile and tell you whether veneers can give you straighter teeth.

Hide Chips and Cracks

Teeth are incredibly durable and yet they aren’t fully resistant to damage. Everything from direct impact to crunching down on hard foods can break or chip a tooth. If this happens to you it’s important that you see your dentist right away for care. Depending on the extent of the damage, veneers may be able to cover chips and cracks within multiple teeth.

Improve the Length of Your Teeth

If you have what is known as a “gummy smile” (where your gums are more prominent than your teeth) then dental veneers could help you. Since veneers are specially crafted to give you the results you want, these simple porcelain shells may be able to help you get a more even, balanced smile.

If you are looking for a dentist in Louetta and Spring, TX, who can give you a beautiful smile with the help of veneers then call Dr. Michael Morris today at (281) 379-6939 to schedule a consultation.

Find out why you may want to consider getting a dental bridge to replace missing teeth.

After losing a tooth you might find yourself feeling embarrassed to smile because of the visible gap between your teeth. You may also find that you have trouble eating certain foods properly. Luckily, our Spring, TX, family dentist Dr. Michael Morris has a simple solution that can give you back a complete smile in just a few weeks. Learn more about dental bridges and the advantages of this tooth replacement options.

How does a dental bridge work?

A dental bridge is a fixed dental appliance that is designed to replace one or two teeth in a row to fill the gap left over by missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two dental crowns (which are cemented into place over natural teeth surrounding the gap) and a false tooth in the middle.

What are the benefits of a dental bridge?

One of the major benefits to getting a dental bridge from our Spring, TX, dentist is that we can prevent complications that often arise with untreated tooth loss. It’s important to turn to your dentist as soon as possible after tooth loss to find out what your options are. Other advantages to getting a dental bridge include,

Aesthetically pleasing

Each crown and false tooth is specially made to match your smile; therefore, even false teeth are made to look just like real teeth. While you will know which teeth aren’t your own no one else will be able to tell. False teeth and crowns are made from porcelain, which are designed to resemble the look and color of tooth enamel.

Fixed in place

Another benefit to having dental bridges is that we use your natural teeth to anchor and hold the bridge in place. This ensures that your false tooth or teeth stay in place and do not move around. Once a bridge is placed you can rest assured that you will be able to enjoy all of your favorite foods without worrying about your teeth moving around.

Quick treatment

Another benefit of getting bridges is that this oral appliance can usually be placed in just two visits. During your consultation we will map out your treatment plan and determine your candidacy for bridges. From there we will prep the teeth for the crown and take impressions of your mouth. A dental lab will then get to work creating your new bridge and once it’s ready (usually within a couple of weeks) we can permanently place your new bridge. It’s a fast and simple process.

Are you living with tooth loss in Spring or Louetta, TX? If so, you want a dentist who will be able to listen to your concerns and provide you with the proper treatment you need. Call our dental practice today at (281) 379-6939 to schedule a consultation to find out if bridges are right for you.
